College Counseling

College Counseling

Navigating the college admissions process can seem complex for students and families. To facilitate a smooth passage, we pair each student with a highly experienced college counselor, a personal guide who will work closely with the student and family.  Through this partnership we are able to tailor the college process to the specific needs, abilities, and interests of each student.

The first stage of our work with students is marked by research and self-discovery as we identify the types of colleges they would like to explore. Such collaboration involves detailed discussions about students’ passions and priorities while they work through the labyrinth of college choices to determine the schools that would best help achieve short and long term goals. Once students identify preferred schools, we map out the appropriate steps for negotiating a successful journey through the college process.

Our counselors come from the world of college admissions, bringing an indispensable degree of insight as they lead our students through deadlines, interviews, standardized testing, athletic recruiting, portfolio assembly, and all other potential application requirements.  There are many steps to the college process, and our dedicated and experienced counselors know how to guide the way towards a rewarding destination.

Every fall, the College Office hosts nearly 100 admissions officers from college and universities from around world.  Seniors are invited to meet with the admissions officers who will most likely read their applications and represent them to the admissions committees.  It is a wonderful opportunity for seniors to get their final questions answered, as well as build relationships with the admissions officers.  Click here to download this year's list of College Visitor (updated as of Oct 20th 2015).
